Synthesis of 2-bromobenzoic acid

Preparation of 2-bromobenzoic acid

Preparation of 2-bromobenzoic acid

Preparation of 2-bromobenzoic acid

35 g of crystallized copper sulfate, 100 g of sodium bromide, and 30 g of copper turnings are boiled under a reflux condenser with 300 ml of water and 33 g of concentrated sulfuric acid until the solution is almost decolorized. 40 g of anthranilic acid are then added and the solution is allowed to cool with ice-water to 0° C. Concentrated, aqueous solution of 21 g of sodium nitrite is slowly added and during the addition the temperature should not exceed 5° C. When all the sodium nitrite has been added the reaction mixture is allowed to stand overnight at the room temperature. The precipitated 2-bromobenzoic acid is then collected, washed with cold water, and recrystallized from water yielding 82 % of long colorless needles melting at 147-150° C.
